Laundry Routine: Tips and Hacks With Me

hey guys today I want to share with you
my laundry routine and some tips and tricks that have made my life a little bit easier
and I also want to thank LG for partnering with me on today’s video if
you do not know I’m a mom of five and let me tell you I am always swimming and
laundry from the little girl that changes her outfit five times a day to
the bedwetting to the skinned knees to the husband that details incredibly
dirty cars for a living all I do is laundry so let me tell you how I
mustered through it in some of the tips and tricks that I do we also gave our
laundry room a new makeover we got new appliances washer and dryer and to my
absolute favorite piece the LG styler which is a steam closet and sanitizer in
one I’ll tell you all about it in a hot minute one of my favorite things about
getting the new appliances is since we do have such a big family our laundry
loads are a lot bigger and so much more frequent so instead of having four
washer and dryers aligned up we have two really big ones one of the first things
we had to do before installing them is measure to make sure that they would
actually fit the WT 7900 model is top of its charts on Consumer Reports for top
loading washing machines it has a turbo wash 3d technology that gives all your
clothes a gentle but powerful clean in 29 minutes the washing machine doesn’t
have an agitator like most washing machines but it has a technology that
gives it the exact same effect without taking away any of the space and it has
a beautiful stainless steel tub which I love another really cool addition to the
washer and dryer that I really love is you can use smart features to select a
cycle start or stop a wash to get notifications when laundry is almost
done on your smartphone when you’re out and about so if you’re going out the
door and you want to stop a watch or you want to make sure that it gets an extra
dry or if you’re upstairs with your baby and you need to go ahead and restart the
dryer to get a little bit more fluffed you can do all of that with your phone
the exact size of this beauty is 5.5 cubic feet which is huge it is the
largest in the class of washers and the best part is the top load washer uses
far less water and energy which really adds up in savings when it comes to
doing laundry the only thing that I actually sort is colors and whites
sometimes I’ll also separate towels and put them in a separate load or if I have
a really really really really messy situation like bedding or soiled clothes
or something that’s really filthy I will put them on separate loads as well now
onto the dryer one of my favorite things about the dryer which makes it
incredibly unique is it has a censored dry system which actually measures the
moisture levels during the cycle to dictate if it needs to add more dry time
or less dry time to make your life so much easier it has a much bigger barrel
so that you can add a lot more clothes in there to get more things dry at a
faster rate it also has an easy load door so you could switch which side the
doors on to make your laundry life so much easier since the washer and dryer
are synced to your phone and they have that smart app technology I’ll use the
smart thin cue app if I’m out and about and I forget to turn off the dryer
another really cool thing that the dryer does is it has a turbo steam technology
that creates steam instantly to get rid of wrinkles and odor next I want to show
you the styler in our washing room oh my gosh this is my favorite piece in the
entire house for me I have a lot of dresses and a lot of delicate pieces I
have to be a little bit more sensitive with just things that may get really
wrinkly or I have items that I don’t want to shrink because I feel like in
the past I used to shrink all of my clothes and be heartbroken so now some
items I just don’t even put into the dryer and then what I’ll do is like
particular items I’ll let air dry and then once they’re done air drying I
actually pop it into this steam closet and let it get all those wrinkles out
for me another thing that my husband geeks out
about about the steamer is that he puts the kids toys in there like if they’ve
been sick it’ll sanitize them the true steam technology that they use is high
heat water vapors and the hangers at the top actually moved for the ultimate
steaming treatment it also helps get rid of odors that are clinging to certain
materials for example all of my husband shirt smell horrible and we’ve been
putting him in there to really break that odor up and to get them nice and
fresh again the LG styler is the first clothing care system of its kind to be
certified by the AAFA for its superior performance at helping remove common
allergens and over 99% of bacteria from fabrics if you do not know I am allergic
to literally everything and if you have a special or delicate clothing item when
you pop it in here the sanitary cycle powered by true steam has helped reduce
allergens in clothes bedding and even my kids stuffed animals so now on for the
laundry like I said I am always drowning in laundry I don’t want to pretend like
I’m perfectly caught up all the time because that wouldn’t be the truth I’m
always doing laundry I always have a lot of loads to do but these are the little
tips and little things that I do that help make it more enjoyable and that
helped my system along a little bit better one of the little tricks that I
did that helped me out a lot is I got some new laundry baskets I still kept
the old ones that I have because like I said we have a lot of kids and a lot of
people so I found several uses for all of them however I got some new ones that
I would carry up specially and use when I’m sorting and it sparked a little bit
of joy I’m really loving them I do a basket system I have about three to four
baskets lined up one basket I will toss in towels and washcloths another basket
is usually my baby clothes we have a newborn and so I’ll just kind of pop in
all those clothes into that basket so I can fold those and separate those a
little bit differently than the other clothes being a busy mom with five kids
and homeschooling my kids I really only get two breaks throughout the day I get
one when I do a load of laundry and two after eight o’clock when I put everyone
to bed and sometimes when I put them to bed that’s not even a break has they’ll
come back in my room but one thing I’ve done to kind of make
this process a little bit more enjoyable because I like to make this my time turn
it into my time close the doors I may have a little man with me cuz sometimes
he tends to be my little buddy and just watch me but just watch a show chat with
my girlfriend on speakerphone listen to an audio book place in my favor
music I might even bring up my favorite drink allow that to be my me time and
just to be able to exhale and relax as far as my kids go I really try to
involve them in the laundry routine after I’ve had my 10 minutes of me time
getting everything done I’ll ask for all the kids to come in and help put away
all of their stuff and even when they’re done with their stuff I’ll have them
help me with the other bits as well they know where everything goes and it’s just
really helpful so that I’m not doing it all all by myself
we don’t have dressers we use baskets and hangers for almost everything and it
works really well because the kids have easy access to it and they’re able to
help us with the laundry routine and also it allows a level of Independence
for when they do have to get dressed or what have you but one of my biggest tips
is if you’re having a laundry rut day where you’re kind of just in a rut and
you’re like I don’t want to do this and you have a basket of laundry start with
the pieces that you love for example I really love folding baby clothes or
little kid clothes I don’t know what it is I swear I’d belong in a baby boutique
just folding baby clothes because whenever I put away those little tiny
clothes it just makes me so happy so I usually tend to do that first and
then it motivates me to continue on one thing that’s really nice about the
smart technology is that if I’m nursing my little one or if my little one starts
to throw a fit and I wasn’t able to start the laundry like I wanted to or I
have a second load that needs to be done I can do that all from my phone biggest
question for you how many loads of laundry do you do a day let me know in
the comments below and let me know what time of day do do your laundry I would
love to hear what works for all the Mamas out there watching one of the other little things that
helps out a ton as I lay on my kids outfit the night before I allow them to
help in picking out what we’re gonna wear but this helps a lot so they don’t
come downstairs all in ball gowns or something super impractical for whatever
we have planned for the day another big tip to fall in love with laundry is to
organize certain spaces I don’t know what it is but jeans just spark joy for
me so I want that drawer to be extra organized Icahn married that particular
drawer and color-coded my jeans and I loved it and I did the same thing to my
workout leggings as far as my closet goes this is kind of how I organize my
closet I do tank tops and t-shirts all together and then I color coordinate
them for me I don’t collect shoes or purses or jewelry do I have a few pieces
totally but it’s not it doesn’t do anything for me my one vice is I love
clothes they are like my little slice of heaven I like to see what’s trending and
like be up-to-date and how I have some fun pieces and that’s one area where I
like to spoil myself so I do try my best to take care of my pieces and that’s why
how I wash them and how I hang them up in my closet is so important to me
because I want them to last a long time another little tip that can elevate your
closet in seconds and you don’t have to spend a thing is to separate your
hangers by an inch or half an inch depending on how many hangers you have
on that rack but by doing this it really elevates the look and sometimes having
your closet more organized and doing those little extra steps it may seem
silly it really allows you to care for your clothes even more because you’re
like I put this extra effort into my closet I want to make sure that all my
pieces go right where I belong and that is all for my laundry
routine if you have any tips or tricks that you want to share let me know in
the comments below and thank you guys so much for watching and if you’re
interested in upgrading some of your appliances I’ll leave all of the LG’s
information down below thank you guys and I will see you in my next one bye

  1. I was going to do laundry on Friday and Saturday but that changed to every other day 2-3 loads!! Washing for 5 and two animals!! I love listening to the washer!! I don't have a dryer so I line dry!!

  2. No laundry for me everyday i wash on the weekends n the most i have is 3 loads its only my toddler n i but in the other hand i have a friend with a family of 6 n she does laundry once a week n its a all day job i tell her to wash at least twice a week but i guess its what she decides to do n i told her about separating the clothes so it to be easier n faster n no she doesnt do it so washing n folding clothes for her it takes 2 days 🤯

  3. I have around 4 loads of laundry and I do laundry after school because I am 13 years old but I do watch your videos because I want to be a professional organizer also my chore is laundry sooo.

  4. I do at least a load a day with a family of 5, I always start it as soon as I wake up so I can get as much done as possible. One thing that I love for my closets is to have all the SAME hangers in each closet. I can’t stand mix-matched hangers. It drives my OCD crazy. I definitely want that steamer! Love your laundry room make over, I was wondering when you were gonna do one 😁

  5. 1 load a day plus more if there are accidents in bed. I have a 11kg washing machine and it’s amazing! Washing is my fave chore! I feel so satisfied when the baskets are empty hehe

  6. My mom does laundry once a week, but she has 4 kids ages 15,13(me),11,and 4 12. ❤ I works for us but don't know you have little ones.

  7. With a seven month old and a four year old every second day I do washing …and I washing early morning and hang before the sun hits the washing lines

  8. One load from start to finish a day for a family of four. I’ve stayed at “laundry zero” for five months, which is huge for me since my clean laundry used to sit in baskets for days at a time. I also use laundry time for my relaxation time and let my kids have a little screen time so they are preoccupied.

  9. Why did I never think of folding baskets for each person… Actual genius and life changing. Buying some today. Thank you

  10. ممتاز استمر😻

  11. I'm not a mom but I do laundry on weekends and for a dog, boyfriend, and I probably 10 loads on average deep cleaning every 3 to 4 weeks I do like 15 to 20 loads. That's this weekend on my first weekend off in along time. So that's why I'm watching for my burned out self for self motivation to get my laundry done this weekend.

  12. Great video babe 👌💖 Thanks for the much needed cleaning motivation 💖 keep up the great work 😘💖 BIG LOVE FROM A FELLOW YOUTUBER 💖

  13. My husband and I have three little ones 4 and under. Needless to say there is endless laundry around here. I tend to wash in the morning and fold after lunch during naptime. The best piece of advice I received concerning laundry was to treat laundry like dishes. Do it to completion everyday. Makes such a difference!

  14. We are a family of 6 so laundry is never ending. Lol for instance yesterday I did 4 loads of laundry and I thought I had washed everything!…. all baskets empty!… then I deep cleaned my 4 & 3 year old boys room and found hidden clothes in the most random places! Like 2 full loads including their dress up clothes! #thestruggleisreal

  15. Everyday multiple loads of laundry here. My downfall is putting it all away! I’m good with washing drying and folding but always find the clothes just sitting in the basket.

  16. Adorei,eu tenho 3 crianças,tenhi bastante roupas para lavar,lavo quase todos os dias vezes por dia,as vezes lavo só uma vez ao dia.Tenha uma ótima quinta-feira.

  17. I always start a load first thing in the morning. I at least do that load but a lot of times 1-2 more a day. We have a family of 5

  18. I’m a SAHM to 3 and my hubby is a firefighter so we go through a lot of laundry! I HAVE to do 2-3 loads a day just to keep yo

  19. I will load the washer before I leave for work as the laundry room is close to the garage. When I come home from work/picking up the kids i start the laundry on my way to the house. Since the washer is loaded and soap in, all I do is press start. I will switch to the dryer before dinner and fold after dinner is cleaned up. I always put away the laundry as soon as possible because I hate wrinkles.

  20. I try to do one a day. I normally will put the clothes in the washer in the morning and then after work out it in the dryer and then fold.

  21. I know how you feel! We are a family of six and I feel like the laundry is never ending. Sometimes I feel so overwhelmed and over it but I get reminded just how blessed we are to have clothes to be able to wash.
    I also have my kids help with putting away their clothes and sometimes even folding their clothes so that it takes the load off of me but also teaches them to be responsible and independent.

  22. I do about 4 loads a day I have 3 kids and my older child changes when she comes home from school and sometimes will change again after dinner do laundry accumulates very quickly!

  23. I don't have a time off the day I dont do it every day I hate laundry. I have 7 people in my house 4 kids and 3 adults sucks with laundry

  24. Realistically I should do 1-2 loads a day (family of 5) but I hate laundry and leave it for Sunday. Which means I do laundry from 7 am until 10 pm on sundays and sometimes I have more to finish up on Monday.

  25. Love your laundry room love the washer and dryer love love that lg steamer thats to die for what a blessing for your family i only do laundry a couple times a week my baby is all grown up and on her own but i take care of my sister and husband they are disabled but thats mostly all of the laundry that baby is a sweetie enjoy those days they grow up so quickly.

  26. The best I have ever seen. LG has come along way. If it was me though I would have my laundry room upstairs because let's face it all the clothes belong upstairs apart from kitchen towels. What do you think? It will save you all the trips up and down with baskets full that brake your back

  27. Work 7 days a week in summer and have been having to go for a year now to laundry mat as doing renos omg so tired of doing that, so it gets piled up, my kids are grown thank god, but still a hassle, your machines are my dream machines, one day that will be done lol

  28. 2 loads of laundry a day, we are just a family of five. We have 3 girls, 8, 3, and 7 months. I do one persons laundry every day of the week, and wash a load of cloth diapers a day. Then on the 2 days I don't do a person's laundry, I do towels, blankets, bedding… that sort of thing. But I've found that just doing one persons laundry at a time makes it a million times easier to fold and put away, and helps the littles be involved too!

  29. Great laundry 🧺 routine and tips 💯✨🧺
    I put a load in b4 bed most the time and do 2-3 loads a day @ most
    And definitely I try and stay on top of my laundry

  30. I do laundry about every other day. I throw a load in before I go to bed and then move it to the dryer when I get up. Each child has a small plastic basket that I separate their clothes into and they put them away.

  31. You should have Kova do her own laundry or even help out, I started doing my own laundry when I was in 2nd grade!

  32. We are a family of 5😉 3 kids& 2 adults. A lot of times, ill do laundry in the afternoon. From 12-4. Usually, 3 loads everytime i wash! But, it helps me feel like im on top of the clothes! I don't think, I've ever had NO dirty clothes lol😂😂😝

  33. When my four girls were at home I had so much laundry! They are all grown now with families of their own❤️I only do
    Laundry a couple days a week at the most now.

  34. I know people say this is an advertisement but if anyone needs a new washer and dryer and steam closet, it's YOU Myka! ❤❤❤❤

  35. My husband and I do laundry about once a month (or when we run out of underwear). I don't know how we're gonna survive when we have our first child in January! And we're going to be cloth diapering. Yikes!

  36. One load every day just after I leave my kid at school. If I have the chance to do more than one load i go for it☺☺ Thanks for your vids darling God bless you.

  37. Well I am a teen and kinda ocd so I do three loads a week one on Sunday of blankets/ sheets on Saturday night I do my dance clothes and Friday night of my normal clothes

  38. I love this video!!! 👏🏼💕 now I need to get organized 🥰 I do most of my laundry in the morning !! Sometimes I do it before dinner time 🙂

  39. I feel like I do so much laundry! There’s always stuff to wash! Bedding, rugs clothes of course pillow cases everything!! So me to girl me too 😂😘

  40. I also make laundry my time. My family knows I have an extensive system. Being a nurse, I am very specific on these items. I will start a load in the morning early before everyone else wakes up, then I will put it in the dryer on the delay to be done when I get home at night. Then I can fold and hang the load up every night. I will do 2-3 loads on the weekends of towels, bedding, or rugs from around the house. When I separate to put away, each family member has a basket where I will put heir clothes. My son is the youngest, but loves to help out by putting his clothes away too. He does not use a dresser either. We use hangers and baskets as well. It’s so much easier for him. Thank you for the video! I want an LG styler now! Next thing to save for! Beautiful babies and family! Love your positivity!

  41. My laundry hack…do laundry every day! I do all the washing every day, and then my oldest son likes to get up early and fold it all. It's not something I require, he just does it because he likes to help out

  42. Most days, I have one load a day and I usually start it after my morning coffee. And in the afternoon I will fold and put away a basket of laundry. I only have two kiddos though, so it’s definitely easy for me to stay on top of it.

  43. Well here in Australia we hardly use dryers just because electricity is really expensive here tho I do use my dryer only if it’s really raining
    I usually put a load at night so I can hang them outside in the morning
    I’m loving ur routine keep up wat u do love watching your videos❤️❤️

  44. The laundry sanitizer is awesome!

    Your voice is soothing to listen to as well. You help me sleep better truelly. 🤗🌻

  45. I do every day 2 loads , family of 5. I iron almost everything. In the wk i do 5 loads. Yep always laundry to do. Mvg cindy de neve from belgium xxx

  46. Hate doing laundry 🧺
    It’s the Bain of my life there are 9 of us (7 kids) so I’m never caught up !!
    Sometimes I think the neighbours sneak it in lol 😂

  47. I want that styler that is so perfect and multi functional! I do 2-3 loads on Sunday, 2 loads on Wednesday, and sheets and towels on Thursday which is about 3-4 loads but this system has finally allowed me to not feel like laundry is never ending. I also bought my kids each a small laundry basket and taught them how to fold their own laundry. It’s a chore they now are responsible for and earn a chore chart sticker for. They actually love doing it!

  48. We are a family of 5 and I do 1 load of clothes laundry a day. Towels and sheets are once a week on certain days. We have 1 laundry basket and when it's full I start a load. Usually do my laundry in the evening after everyone takes a bath.

  49. Hello my name is shaheen and I am from india and I am your new subscriber i enjoyed seeing your video by the way what is your name

  50. We are a family of 4 and it depends on how caught up i am! at the moment im all caught up so i do one a day! Most is abouy 3 when i change bedding and towels xx

  51. I have 8 kids so each kid has their own basket that way they can fold it themselves and put it away! We have minimal wardrobe so about 5 outfits per child. The age of my kids 15,13,9,8,6,4,2 and 7months old. I do the baby and 2 year old everyone does their own!!

  52. Hi MYKA, What are you using for detergent ? A different one for the kids? Fabric softner? Also can you please do a Mama fashion video for us moms trying to look put together like YOU everyday,,, it would be appreciated …,Im lost in that area with two 5 year olds and Im always running to the school for something! thanks Love your channel 🙂

  53. Top load washers are approx. 30% less clean than front loaders. Additionally, I can’t put everything in the washer … may be 50%.

  54. We are a family of 4 and I do laundry once or twice a week, 1-2 loads. I don't often separate , I just use cold and do whatever basket is full. I like to load them at night and then put on the timer so that when I wake up it has just finished and I can move it over to the dryer first thing in the morning. I like to fold upstairs on the landing and the kids will come and take their stacks. I also watch YouTube while doing laundry, makes it a treat!

  55. I wash everything in the house on the weekends..clothes, towels, sheets and blankets, cleaning rags. My goal is to have it all folded and put away by Sunday night. My family of 4 (plus 2 fur babies) means 6-8 loads a week. I was just joking to my husband that I wish my washer and dryer used Bluetooth so I don’t have to keep running down to the basement to see if it’s done 😂

  56. I be needing that washer and dryer. That would make my life so much easier. I have 4 kids 4 and under. You guys can check out the train wreck that's our laundry situation my channel.
